Possibly a cracked IC board inside the radio, makes contact when cold after it warms the circuit opens and it shuts down, automotive radios are not marine capable and will fail rapidly due to chassis shock and moisture. I did the same thing in a boat I had, put in a automotive stereo and it played just fine until I hit a wake from another boat, bye bye stereo, it cracked the internal IC board, it was easily repaired by a electronics shop but did not put it back in the boat, bit the bullet and put in a marine unit, no more trouble.
